That sentence would have taken on a vastly different meaning earlier this season, but Julio Lugo might be winning over some fans.
Lugo is 3-for-4 with an RBI from the leadoff spot. Actual production from the top of the order. Don’t adjust your sets.
In his last three starts, Lugo has gone 7-for-12 with a walk, RBI and run scored to raise his average to .250.
Could he also get the start in Game 2, perhaps at shortstop, with Ty Wigginton replacing him at second?
There aren’t many hot hands on this team. Play the ones you’ve got.
